Quoting Jet-lagged (Reply 8):
It would be a nice addition but I don't think it will come anytime soon for BA. There are 6 weekly services to be shared between 4 airlines and 5 chinese cities...
|Quoting 6thfreedom (Reply 18):|
Unlikely I think.
Given the number of oneworld services LHR-HKG between BA, QF and CX, Guangzhou's proximity to HKG and the relatively conveninent rail links between HKG and CAN, I cant see this happening any time soon...
|Quoting EK156 (Reply 19):|
I disagree for one reason. Many Chinese from the mainland are not able to travel to HK due to political reasons. So for them flying to LHR direct from Guanzhou would be very convenient rather than going through the hassle of getting permission to go to HK which most probably would be more difficult then getting a Visa to the UK.
|Quoting Chinaeastern (Reply 24):|
it's not that hard to go to HK for chinese nationals and even the special permit is waived for pax holding an international air ticket. practically, most people in CAN do actually using HKG for international flights even direct flights from CAN are available.
|Quoting EK156 (Reply 21):|
But CAN is a better freight destination than Shanghai. And I would believe many International Airlines will start flying to CAN soon.
